TENNIS STAR ANDY MURRAY TIES THE KNOT

Third seed Tennis star Andy Murray has let go of the bachelor status as he ties the knot with his girlfriend of 9years Kim Sears in a ceremony in his hometown.

Murray announced his engagement to Miss Sears, his girlfriend in November last year. The pair met as teenagers in 2005 through her father Nigel, who is a tennis coach.

The couple, both 27years of age, exchanged vows at the 12th Century cathedral. Murray was dressed in a blue and green kilt while Sears wore an embroidered white gown with three-quarter-length sleeves and a long veil.

Murray’s divorced parents Judy and William, his grandparents Shirley and Roy Erskine and former British tennis number one Tim Henman and his wife Lucy were among the guests.

Murray’s fans turned out early at Dunblane’s magnificent cathedral. Earlier, hailstones and showers battered the venue but the sun later returned.

The world number three earlier said he was not nervous about the occasion.

Hundreds of the world’s media captured the event which has sparked interest around the globe.

He said: “We’ve been together like nine-and-a-half years and we’ve lived together for six or seven years as well.

“So, I don’t think a whole lot’s going to change. I kind of feel like we have been married already in terms of the way we spend our lives together and live together.

“I think I will be more nervous about starting a family because that would be more life-changing, in a good way.” (courtesy BBC)

We wish you a happy married life
